Only pin code, only hardcore. Locking a smartphone with a fingerprint reduces its security, says Group-IB digital forensics specialist

Group-IB digital forensics specialist Igor Mikhailov told the Prime agency why you should not use a fingerprint on your phone.

According to him, locking a smartphone with a fingerprint reduces its security, as the fingerprint can be copied. In addition, it is possible to unlock the gadget with someone else’s fingerprints, especially on devices with an old sensor.

The most secure way to unlock a smartphone, according to Mikhailov, is to use complex passwords. He advised to turn off the fingerprint login and leave only the pin code.

As for unlocking a smartphone by face, Apple’s Face ID system is the most reliable, but even its enthusiasts managed to deceive with photos and masks of the owners.
